For this tutorial we used a skein of our The Mixed Yarn and a pair of size 8 beechwood knitting needles.

Row 2 (right side): start by knitting 2 stitches. *Continue by yarning over and knitting 3. Now pass the first stitch (counting from the tip of your needle inwards towards the 3 stitches that you just knitted) over the other two stitches (in the above image the stitch that you have to pass over the others is marked) *. Repeat from * to * until there is only 1 stitch left. Knit 1.
